I have nothing but respect for Mr. Faber, but this interview seems to contain a lot of ramble about recent events — an all too common problem with many commentators who are getting up in age (and even those who aren’t). It really didn’t add anything new that Doug’s listeners havent heard many times before.

I know the presenters have to try to put out conversational content, but sometimes doing so using repetitive topics makes the listener weary.

Lastly, can we please try to get to the heart of the matter? Can we cut back a bit on predictions about the future and talk more about what’s really at the heart of the problems facing mankind?…and what we can possibly do about them?
